Tropical Prints

Plain leggings are boring; don’t you think? We are not saying that there is anything wrong with owning 6+ pairs of plain black leggings, but something a little print can be just so refreshing. Think tropical prints; something can palm trees or flowers. When wearing tropical leggings, make sure that your top doesn’t have too much going on because otherwise you will look like a hot mess.

Since we have already touched the topic of prints, why not discuss some more hot prints popular in activewear?

From softer fabric to cutout detailing and delicate embellishments, this trend is something you definitely need to try. And you know what the best part it? You can totally customize any oversized sweatshirt by getting a motivational quote printed on it.

Bralettes and Crop Tops

Over the past few years, sportswear brands have really kicked things up in the sports bra department. Many brands have managed to design something that is both comfortable and super supportive at the same time. For 2017, there’s going to be a new addition; they are finally going to be super cute too! Do you know what that means? You can now wear bralettes and crop tops that are super cute without having the need to sacrifice performance.

Bomber Jackets (Sweat-friendly, of course)

Silk bomber jackets are considered to be super trendy pieces that work really well with leggings. Just wear a bomber jacket with your favorite pair of leggings and you have the perfect streetstyle outfit ready!

Tips for Wearing the Sportswear Gym Wear Trend

Now that we have talked about the different 2017 activewear trends, let’s discuss a few tips for wearing it.

Follow a Theme

When it comes to sportswear, there are so many directions you can take. When putting together an outfit, make sure to have a theme. For example you can create that typical ‘jock’ athletic lock or that classic ‘I am heading to a workout after this’ look.

Keep It Street

If you are wearing activewear as normal day wear, then you want to put together an outfit that doesn’t make you look like you have just come out of the gym. It should be street appropriate; like a blush pink colored top paired with the comfiest pair of jogger pants in your closet.

Back to Basics

The easiest way to wear the gym wear trend is by going old school or taking it back to basics. A simple t-shirt with a drawstring trouser and some sneakers; what could be simpler than this outfit? Whenever you are having trouble putting the perfect activewear inspired outfit together, try this trick out as it will always be a life saver!

Show Off Some Skin

Sportswear can sometimes come off as a bit slouchy, so balance that out by showing a bit of skin. You obviously can’t mix sportswear and sexy together; that’s a big no-no. Nothing says sportier than a bit of toned body, right?

Go For Accessories

Accessories can really make a huge difference to your entire outfit. Don’t be afraid to add a few accessories to achieve that put together look. Things like a cool baseball cap, a head band, sunglasses or a chunky sports watch; all these accessories would be the perfect finishing touches to your sportswear look.

Minimal Makeup

A full face of makeup and sportswear doesn’t really go together. So, whenever you are wearing activewear, go for a natural makeup look. Add some blush to create that flushed look and maybe even a little bronzer for a sun-kissed affect.

We are in love with activewear, especially since they are so easily customizable!
